Dental surgery in Worcester means a lot of different things, from wisdom tooth extraction to implant placement. While treatment needs can vary significantly, Dr. Levenson ensures every patient’s comfort with oral conscious sedation and innovative NuCalm therapy.
Dental fear is often rooted in past experiences. Many of the sights, sounds, sensations, and smells associated with dental surgery frequently trigger these painful memories. Drills, needles, vibrating dental instruments, and distinct “clinical” scents such as those from bonding products can all produce some level of fear, from mild anxiety to full-blown phobia that keeps those sufferers away from the dentist’s office and the care they need to stay healthy.
While many dentists may offer “laughing gas,” Dr. Levenson has sedative options to calm even the most anxious patients. As a member of the Doctors for Oral Conscious Sedation, he is trained to safely match you with an effective sedative medication based on factors such as your medical history and health status. The doctor will provide instructions on when to take the pill, which is designed to make you drowsy but doesn’t knock you out, an attractive feature for those patients who may be anxious about sedation more than treatment itself. When sedatives are a source of fear among patients, this is often due to a perceived lack of control during the procedure. You remain awake and able to answer questions and respond to instructions. Later, memories of treatment won’t linger due to the sedative’s "amnesiac" effect.
Patients who desire a natural approach may be good candidates for NuCalm. It uses supplements, cranial electrotherapy stimulation, noise-blocking headphones, and light-blocking eye masks to counteract the adrenaline responsible for “fight or flight” symptoms like muscle tension, difficulty breathing, and chest pain.
